Answer

Hi - There are lots of possible causes for nipple itchiness; most are external (a bra that doesn't fit quite right, lots of swimming in a chlorinated pool, using a new shower soap, etc.) However, if this itchiness is getting worse and more extensive, and confined to one breast, as it sounds like it is, it may be the issue is more internal. Please read our post on breast itchiness, as well as our post on nipple issues; I think you'll find information there you can use to determine whether or not you need to see a doctor, and how soon. I hope this stops on its own soon - sounds very uncomfortable! PJH
